The French DGAC aviation authority is requesting airlines to reduce international flights by up to 50 percent on October 19.

Reuters reports that the request was prompted by the unions’ call for another day of national protests and strikes on Tuesday.

In a statement French authorities said that airlines were being asked to reduce flights to Paris’s Orly airport by 50 percent and to all other airports by 30 percent.
